    36 weeks for me with my first baby, looking back I can't believe I lasted that long!! Busy ED but we were short staffed. This time I'll aim for 32-34 weeks!

    I finished at 34 weeks. My feet were so swollen and even me wearing compression stocking weren't even working. Lucky i did because my ds arrived early....

    It seems like 30 weeks might be a good idea

    I did 36 for 1st bubs but we're in a clinic environment with no shift work and no heavy lifting etc. this time I'm planning for 35-6 again just so I can maximize my time off work (just managed to do a year last time with ppl and a/l but might be tighter this time with part time mat leave) and then leave earlier if I need to. Depends on your role I guess and if they'll be nice to you with pt loads!

    38 weeks for DD1, gave birth 9 hours later, DD2 38+3- went into labor on a shift in emergency. This time no idea I'm thinking of having annual leave from 37 weeks. I work in a busy emergency dept and have really bad back and hip pain- no idea really how I went so long with the girls.
